About the JRA

The Licensing Act 2003 requires the City Council to carry out its licensing functions so as to promote the four licensing objectives. These are:

• The Prevention of Crime and Disorder;

• Public Safety;

• The Prevention of Public Nuisance;

• The Protection of Children from Harm.

Decisions on the granting of licenses are made by the Licensing Committee of the City Council.

When there is an application for a licence those living nearby can object if they so wish. Objections should be framed in terms of the licensing objectives listed above. They can be sent to the licensing section of the City Council by email - licensing@newcastle.gov.uk

This PDF shows the Special Policy Area. In the area shown below bounded in red there is a cumulative impact policy - applicants must show that if granted  a liquor licence there will be no increase in the cumulative impact on the area. This policy covers public bars and off-licences - BUT it does not cover licensed restaurants.
